Disapearing Act - Live?

Am I utterly insane for wondering if they might try the song out live?

I know, they aren't mixing the setlist up a lot lately and it is basically a B-side... but they did play Wave of Sorrow live once.....

It would be a great surprise and...I don't know.....I think it could sound really great live!

What do you guys think?

I think they did Wave of Sorrow because it was fresh on their minds, I have a feeling Disappearing Act was done awhile back and probably isn't really on their minds... who knows

i could see it. they did just play Disappearing Act for the radio not long ago, so i would think it's fresh in their minds.

I don't think it's likely. We've only got four gigs to go, and Disappearing Act isn't officially released until there's only the Vancouver show left. Come the resumption of touring in May next year, it may've slipped their minds and I doubt they'll have much impetus to play it.

I suppose they could also do something out of the box for the RARHOF gig on 30 October, but I fully expect that to be a greatest hits parade.

Yeah, I guess only having 4 gigs left makes it unlikely..... It's too bad. If this was the Vertigo tour I'd almost expect it, but they aren't doing a lot of setlist surprises this time out... Too bad!

It's worth noting that Window In The Skies didn't debut until there were only four gigs left on Vertigo. However, it had been officially released on U2:18 for almost two weeks before it debuted. I think that's a key point. If we think nobody at the gigs right now knows Your Blue Room, it'll look like a greatest hit compared to Disappearing Act. Not many people in the audience, relatively speaking, will buy the 2CD version of the UF remaster, and even fewer will have heard the leak. If they did it in Phoenix, I'll be impressed if more than 50 people in the venue even know what they're playing. U2 of today aren't going to take that sort of risk.

When did it become the case that people at concerts only want to hear what they already know? It seems to be the case...... but I remember when a band you liked would play something you didn't know and it would be exciting!

I know, I just don't understand it. I love it when I go to gigs and hear stuff I don't know, whether it's a band I didn't previously know at all, or material I didn't know a band I liked had written. Gives you more impetus to dig into a band's discography, you know? "Wow, I loved that - need to find where it comes from!"

And on Vertigo, it seemed the scintillating performances of The Electric Co. generated some interest in Boy! But this tour ... it's disappointing. NLOTH songs? "Play oldies!" Your Blue Room? "Play a song we know!" Stay? "Play a song with a big chorus!"

That's right. Electric Co., An Cat Dubh, The Ocean. I'm sure the band were playing them to INTRODUCE the audience to their earlier work!

Now, it seems the audience just wants to hear what they already know, nothing threatening or that requires them to think or process information. Is Unknown Caller a good song? Well, since I don't already know it I must not be interested in it.....

I can't imagine any of these people are in the habit of discovering new bands by seeing them live anymore......

Won't happen with the whole song but maybe we could get a cool snippet of it?
